EJ's has become a once a week place to go - that's how excellent it is!
We had the bone in strip - which was a special on the menu. Really good.
Christian was our waiter and the service was outstanding.
Overall food was amazing and the service was good, but our server got distracted by a bigger party and forgot about us. Not ideal when dining w a baby and timing counts.
Great food and David is the best!!! Never disappoints!!
The steaks along with the sides (sautéed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes) we had were delicious! Service was excellent as well. The decor didn’t quite match the cost of the food. Felt more like I was in a restaurant in the north woods where I would have a casual family meal rather than a place where they sell $60 steak dinners. That being said, I would probably go back to try some of the less costly items on their menu simply because the food is very good. Lastly, the noise level was pretty high. It made us rush through the meal just so we can get out and hear each other.
It’s great but very expensive
Awesome food and incredible service.
The best! Wonderful execution from the staff, as always.
Great every time
Lots of food. No one could finish their meal
Lots of leftovers
Way too expensive, but very good tasting food.
Food was good especially the seafood pasta was outstanding.The sea bass was good but not great. When you go to EJ’s you better expect to spend a few bucks because it is kind of pricey but very good for special occasions
Stopped in for the first time on Wednesday, before attending a play in Glencoe. Food and service were like being downtown Chicago!
Waiter was very good! Dover sole was excellent and moist, which isn't' always the case.
No better place on the North Shore. Food and Service are outstanding. They pour a good drink as well.
Delicious food, excellent t service. First time there and was very pleased. Will be back!
Delicious meats, wonderful cocktails, excellent service make this a great adult hangout. The key lime pie is scrumptious, too!
A traditional supper club with food and service that is a cut above.
Kid friendly but pricey.
Nicely aged steak and huge portions.
Overall a positive experience for all!
Food & service always good. A bit noisy where we were sitting.
Everything was amazing except for the 3 drunk women sitting at the table next to us. The food is incredible and the service is wonderfully attentive. We had a fabulous meal.
It was perfect. !
bone in strip was the finest steak we ever had.
there was not one bad cottage fry in the bunch.
2nd time in a row having Christian as our waiter...awesome job again!
One of the best.
Always highly recommend.
Great place for dinner on a special occasion or any time. The service is top notch.
BEST PLACE EVER. NO MATTER WHAT YOU ORDER, THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT; PLUS, A BONUS! YOU GET TO EAT THAT SAME MEAL FOR THE NEXT TWO DAYS AS WELL BECAUSE THEIR PORTIONS ARE HUGE. MY BROTHER AND NEPHEW SPLIT A SKIRT STEAK - AND COULD BARELY FINISH IT. I HAD ORDERED THE SKIRT STEAK ON ANOTHER OCCASION FOR MYSELF AND I HAD ENOUGH TO EAT FOR THREE DAYS FOLLOWING. THE DRINKS ARE STRONG. THE SERVICE BEYOND COMPARE. GO THERE. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Another fantastic dinner @ EJ's. Cannot go wrong.
1st time having the sauteed spinach w/ garlic...so good.
Lamb chops are excellent....they make it very hard, because too many great things.
Difficult to pass up the steaks, there are no better.
Also, management, was very accommodating - Mothers day weekend they were smashed,
we mistakenly walked in thinking we made a reservation and found out it
was accidentally the next weekend...no problem , sat us as if it never happened.
(where else would a busy restaurant do that w/o an issue?) THANK YOU, to Abalino,
if you see the review!
Great seeing Patrick, he is a superstar.
Christian is an excellent. Very attentive, friendly and professional. We always ask to be seated in his section.
Great food! Sausage & peppers is outstanding! Chopped salad is the best salad there is! Our winter David was A+! Always a favorite for any occasion
EJ’s never disappoints. The bar scene is lively and friendly and always a strong pour. We all ordered our favorite cuts of steak. Makes for a delicious steak sandwich the next day.
Great place, best steaks on the North Shore. Service always the best. Downtown feel ,
but closer to home.
Excellent service, food, and overall value; lively ambience.
Great experience. Very expensive
consistently good quality, delicious preparation, wonderful attentive and friendly service. FANTASTIC
We love EJs food and atmosphere. It’s just way too overpriced so we don’t go that often.
Awesome Anniversary dinner!
Great place for a family birthday dinner. Great private room, service, food.
EJ’s is our Friday night go-to place for great steaks, fish with friendly, no rush service. Prices are a little high, but portions are huge. Worth it!
The chicken with peppers is outstanding and the portion is enough for two. Service was perfect.
Raul was a great server and the food was outstanding....served piping hot!
Always great steaks, fish and chicken (Vesuvio) along with professional service by longtime servers and staff
